Designed and assembled completely in Germany to guarantee you the highest quality for years to come, Thoren's TD 190-2 top quality components, simple operation and astonishing sound quality provide you with a smooth running turntable and maximum listening pleasure. An upgrade from the TD 170-1, this model's plinth and platter have more mass, which in combination with the electronically controlled DC motor enhances the silent running as well as the sound. Easy-to-use, high-quality fully automatic turntable - the TD 190-2 is not just for beginners! Plug-and-play 33⅓, 45, 78 rpm Fully automatic Internal precision belt drive 0.6 kg non-magnetic platter High quality acrylic cover Fitted with genuine Danish made Ortofon OMB 10 cartridge Bring out the very best from your favourite records with the TD190-2's Subchassis construction, electronically regulated DC motor, pre-mounted TP 19.1 tone arm and genuine ORTOFON OM10 cartridge. And to protect your vinyl (and the unit when not in use), it of course includes a high quality acrylic cover. Owing to its easy operation (practically plug-and-play), you can start playing your records right away without having to waste time with finicky alignment work. It doesn’t matter if you prefer the delicate sound of a violin or a powerful guitar riff, the accurate sound of the fully automatic TD 190-2 will suit any of your 33⅓, 45, 78 rpm records (the special stylus/cartridge required for 78 rpm is available separately). Thorens new TP 19-1 Tonearm is designed to deliver improved performance as well as a far better look and feel. Gimbal mounting: The entire assembly is mounted on a non-warping aluminium frame. This precision bearing technology rests in ball races by means of hardened and polished steel needles. The same technology can also be found in navigation instruments (gyro) employed in aerospace. Counterweight: The counterweight includes a damper bush to decouple it from the arm tube to reduce colouration. Headshell: The headshell is manufactured from high-grade synthetic materials reinforced by carbon fibre for extreme stiffness and rigidity. Tracking force: After having achieved total equilibrium of the tone arm, tracking force is adjusted by means of a precision torsion spring. Its force is always the same with respect to magnitude and direction. It therefore does not matter if the record player is no totally level. Anti-skating (bias): Bias is individually adjustable via a scale.

Some consider ownership of a Thorens to be a major step in becoming a 'true' audiophile. The skill and knowledge behind Thorens' beautifully-engineered, high-end audio equipment is based on over 125 years of research and development. This love of sonic reproduction is evident from their entry level turntables through to their flagship (the Thorens TD 550). Founded in 1883 in Switzerland, Thorens turntables are now constructed in Germany, which is evident in the build quality of each of their products. Wonderfully well-engineered, sturdily built, completely reliable, and, if the need ever arises, hard-working like real professional decks, the best Thorens turntables are a joy to own and a pleasure to use.
